Navy News- HMS Cornwall ends 3 month hostage ordeal

BZ to them!

The only thing that gets me is this: "With no legal powers to detain the pirates, only to destroy their kit, the ship returned the Somalis to their native land before resuming her mission with Combined Task Force 151 in the Gulf of Aden." I assume we'll be seeing them again in a few weeks...

BZ CMF!

Shame that no legal action can be done, such as jailing them or something.. Surely this can't act of MUCH of a deterrent if they know that all that will happen is their kit will be lost.

None-the-less, good to know one more "mothership" is out of action, even if it is only temporary
 
BZ HMS Cornwall. I assume the lack of national media attention accompanying the rescue of five hostages held by Somali pirates for three months reflects the fact that they were 'only' Yemenis.
